English how about just conversation?
I always loved and have longings for the mountains!!!
My time in Freiburg ensured that ski trips to Switzerland were regular events.
Sooo enjoyable !
Another reason for trips South was Volleyball. Our Freiburger Team used to play
regularly against the Swiss National Team.... (but that is a few 😃 years ago).
Where did you live in the SW of England?
Greetings from Kernow,
When our children were little we enjoyed spending holidays in England´s soouthwest. We found a wonderful campsite in Ladram Bay. Sunshine, beach, cliffs, nice neighbours, fossils,entertainment.
Would like to go there again.
Durdatha whye!.....thanks to google!
Nice to hear from you!
To be honest I never learnt a word of Cornish. Still, I have beautiful memories of our time there.
Which part of the coutry do you live in?
I lived in the area of Bournemouth first and later in Alderholt near Ringwood.
I spend a lot of time in the New Forest riding.
Take care....morelater, I hope
Your area of Ladram Beach looks beautiful too. It is a long way of Bournemouth area.
It is worth going there one day for sure.
NIce to read you here.
Hi there yoli, We live just outside of Orihuela in an old spanish village. Orihuela is located between Alicante and Murcia. We love the tranquil life and of course the many hours of sunshine.
Where all have you been in Spain?
Very interesting to read where you spent your years/visits in/to the SW of England.
My first exploration of the entire South Coast (from Dover to Land's End) was achieved
on a 3 gear bicycle in my student days. Certainly a beautiful coastline from East to West.
I have lived here now for longer than I ever anticipated......😄😃....
Just about 500m below Knill's Monument also known as the Steeple. The area is known
for its large beautiful sandy beaches, rocky cliffs, and -sometimes- wild weather.
But I miss high mountains, climbing, snow, and skiing.
So what ??? 😆
My first trip to Spain was in June 1953. My mother drove the car a fact that surprised many people in Spain who saw us.on the road. We went all the way through France and Spain as far south as Córdoba, Granada and Sevilla. We visited the Alhambra being the almost only visitors.on that day.
This picture was taken in the 1960s.
I imagine you were considered the eighth wonder of the world. I assume that the long way was worth it, because visiting the Alhambra without crowds must have been unique. The picture is gorgeous 👍
I just found the attached and thought it might explain why I stayed in Cornwall fort so many years !
Greetings !! Lerge
Yes that is the way I felt about Cornwall. Another world! The last time I was in the area though...( in June) there were so many tourist around that it had at that moment lost the magical impression I had of it.
As I have friends in Swanage, where I spent my first year in the country, I go there when I am over in GB.
I worked in a boy’s prep school as a scullery maid. That was a good time.
Nice to talk about it I dwell in the memories now.
